1993 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Auto Transmission Fluid Spew

 

Question

I have a 1993 Jetta with an automatic transmission. It intermittently has begun to spew transmission fluid, it does not appear to be coming from the dip stick, breather or the transmission cooler. Approximately 3/4 of a litre appears on top of the transmission when going up a hill. Has anyone else had this problem? Where might it be coming from?

    Are you sure this isn't coming from the vent? Is the fluid level correct? I believe the fluid level has to be checked while monitoring the transmission temperature, so it can be tricky to get the proper level.
